Product Description
AMSOIL Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil delivers extraordinary lubrication in both diesel and gasoline engines found in commercial, fleet and personal vehicles. By combining the industry's premier synthetic technology with AMSOIL premium additives, AMSOIL Series 3000 exceeds the higher performance demands of modern engines, including those with turbochargers. It withstands the stress of higher heat, higher acid levels and excessive soot-loading found in exhaust gas recirculation (EGR)-equipped engines. AMSOIL Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil consistently outperforms conventional and synthetic diesel oils for long-lasting performance and protection.

AMSOIL, the leader in automotive synthetic lubrication, produced the world's first API-qualified synthetic motor oil in 1972. Trust the extensive experience of AMSOIL, The First in Synthetics® to do the best job protecting your engine.

Extends Drain Intervals
AMSOIL Series 3000 Diesel Oil can extend drain intervals far beyond those recommended for conventional oils. Its unique synthetic formulation and long-drain additive system deliver maximum engine protection, cleanliness and performance over extended drain intervals, reducing vehicle maintenance and waste oil disposal costs.

Maximizes Fuel Economy
AMSOIL Series 3000 Diesel Oil is energy efficient for reduced fuel costs. Its low viscosity minimizes "drag" associated with high-viscosity oils, allowing the engine to operate more freely, maximizing power and fuel economy.

Maximum Protection Against Engine Wear
Even under high temperatures and pressures, AMSOIL Series 3000 Diesel Oil’s superior film strength and anti-wear additives help prevent metal-to-metal contact. AMSOIL Series 3000 reduces ring wear, cylinder bore polishing, oil consumption and valve train wear for improved engine life and lower maintenance costs.

Controls Soot Thickening and Wear
AMSOIL Series 3000 Diesel Oil is heavily fortified with detergent/dispersant additives and is naturally resistant to soot. It is designed to keep soot particles suspended independently and prevent them from attaching together to form larger, wear-causing particles. Viscosity increase is minimized and soot-related wear is controlled.

Reduces Oil Consumption and Emissions
AMSOIL Series 3000 Diesel Oil effectively reduces high-temperature volatility (evaporation), outperforming conventional oils. Because less oil vapor passes into the combustion chamber, oil consumption and emissions are reduced. Additionally, lower volatility helps AMSOIL Series 3000 Diesel Oil retain its viscosity after high-temperature service for continued dependable protection and excellent fuel economy.

Excels in Extreme Temperatures
AMSOIL Series 3000 Diesel Oil resists thermal (heat) breakdown, oxidation and sludge formation better than conventional oils. And unlike conventional petroleum oils, AMSOIL Series 3000 contains no wax. It stays fluid down to -50°C (-58°F) for improved cold-temperature oil flow, reduced bearing wear and easier starting.

Service Life
AMSOIL Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil is recommended for extended drain intervals in unmodified, mechanically-sound vehicles or equipment as follows:

Diesel Engine Service

• Three times (3X) OEM* recommendation, not to exceed 50,000 miles/600 hours or one year, whichever comes first. Drain intervals may be extended further with oil analysis.

Gasoline Engine Service

• Normal Service — Up to 25,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first, or longer based on oil analysis.
• Severe Service — Up to 15,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first, or longer based on oil analysis.

*Operating conditions and drain intervals for severe and normal service are defined by the OEM. Refer to your owner’s manual.

Compatibility
AMSOIL Series 3000 5W-30 Synthetic Heavy Duty Diesel Oil is compatible with conventional and synthetic motor oils. Mixing AMSOIL motor oils with other oils, however, will shorten the oil life expectancy and reduce the performance benefits. AMSOIL does not support extended drain intervals where oils have been mixed.

Aftermarket oil additives are not recommended for use with AMSOIL motor oils.

HEALTH & SAFETY
This product is not expected to cause health concerns when used for the intended application and according to the recommendations in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).

Excellent Oil

I've been using Series 3000 5w-30 in my 2005 Ram 2500 with Cummins engine for 5 years now. I change it once a year, every 20,000 miles (without sampling...vlimd faith). Truck had 140k miles when I bought it and first put in Amsoil....it now has 240k and runs perfectly. I will always use Series 3000.

I believe in Amsoil products

I have been using Amsoil lubrication in all of my cars, trucks, tractors and compressors since 1974. I am very happy with the results I have had with Amsoil - higher mileage, better cooling due to less friction and longer oil change schedule.

I wouldn't crank up my 2001 Powerstroke 7.3 diesel without Series 3000 in the crankcase !! It's amazing protection, and allows me to only change oil when needed. The auxillary remote filtration system I purchased from Amsoil allows me years of worry-free protection !!!! NOTHING better !!!!

Series 3000 5W-30 Heavy Duty Diesel oil

I've been using using this product in my 2001 Ford Excursion 7.3L Diesel. Change every 15,000 miles . 288,000 miles so far ! High pressure oil actuates the fuel injectors on this engine. Still on original injectors. I believe the full synthetic oil has helped extend the life of the injectors. Several of my friends have had to replace their injectors on similar Ford diesels. Looking to put 500k miles on my Excursion. Amsoil products in transmission and rear end as well.

Series 3000 5W-30 for the 6.0 Powerstroke engine

I have experienced quite a few problems with the 6.0 Powerstroke engines and I can say that my 6.0 runs like a top after switching to this oil. As far as I am concerned this is the only oil that I will ever put back into this machine - it has made a noticeable difference, especially in cold weather. I was skeptical at first but this oil was made with the 6.0 in mind. The standard 15w-40 oils tend to get sheared down by the High Pressure Oil Pump meaning they are 15W-40 when you put it in the engine but it is not 15W-40 when it comes back out. Where the Series 3000 oil goes in at 5W-30 and comes out at 5W-30.

Chevy diesel

I have used this product for years. I keep my vehicles for many years so important to keep wear under control. When my trucks hit 45000 miles I switch to Amsoil 3000 and have gotten longevity on all with no major engine trouble. Never had to plug my vehicles in, in cold weather. And I've had to travel upstate NY in very cold weather.

Utterly boring, reliable oil. 12 quarts + EaO80 filter + 9.1k miles = no oil burned + analysis came out excellent :-)

Re: update after 9k miles

Chip, thank you for confirming the outstanding performance of Series 3000 Synthetic 5W-30 Heavy-Duty Diesel Oil, and that it provides the driver the security of knowing their engine is going to provide trouble-free operation mile after mile. Based on the oil analysis, it is still fit for use. Replied by Tech Admin

excellent oil

I'm lazy - changed the main bearings this morning with the crank still in place. Along with a new oil pump, oil pickup, 6 quarts HDD + EaO15, I'm good for at least a year.

Low temp flow/longlife like ATM, and Zn/Ph/bearing protection/film strength/high temp stability like ZRT/Dominator, this oil is a winner, and personally recommended by Alex Farkas.
I hear the founder of AMSOIL uses this too.

"The HDD has a higher level of ester content, a higher Base Number Detergent/Dispersant package, and two new FM/AW components; one an ester and the other an organometallic compound."

the best multipurpose oil

With some research I found out that series 3000 is a very high end oil in terms of what goes into it (read robust additive package).

Also this is the only oil that can be used in virtually any application (diesel, gas & propane) that requires 30 or 40 weight oils (like 5w30, 10w40 etc).

This one drum replaced various grades of oils in the farm. No more confusion. One oil goes into all farm equipments... small engines to diesel tractors. Supports extended drain interval for up to 1 year. Amsoil HDD provides excellent performance, protection & convenience. A total time saver. Hope Amsoil keep making this oil.

Re: the best multipurpose oil

Hi Ryan, series 3000 HDD is a high performance, multipurpose oil, excellent for a wide range of older & off road vehicles and equipments (gas & diesel) but it is not suitable for 2007 & up diesels equipped with diesel particulate filter (use a CJ-4 spec Amsoil).

Also do not use HDD on modern vehicles that require oils with certain specs (as described by the manufacturer), which HDD may not cover. Replied by Tech Admin
